Tottenham have called off talks with Antonio Conte about becoming their next manager.

However, negotiations have ground to a halt and BBC Sport understands there is no likelihood of them resuming.

Suggestions from Italy are that Conte was starting to have doubts due to the transfer budget he was set to be given.

However, Tottenham also had concerns as well.

The Italian manager has a reputation for buying ready-made stars whereas, under chairman Daniel Levy, Tottenham’s reputation has come through development and building teams, as they did under Pochettino.

It leaves Tottenham still looking for a new boss, nearly seven weeks after sacking Mourinho.

Julian Nagelsmann and Brendan Rodgers have also been linked with the role. Nagelsmann subsequently joined Bayern Munich, while Rodgers has stated his commitment to Leicester City.
